2014 Amendment to Pennsylvania Driving Violations increases mandatory minimum sentence

by | Jan 26, 2015 | Criminal Defense

This subsection and new amendment may be significantly impacted based on the PA Supreme Court’s ruling on mandatory minimum sentences in light of the US Supreme Court’s ruling in Alleyne.
